A song is everlasting! It can be sung over many generations. Come learn what a good song is, and how you can even write one in a day! Desmond Moey is a professional songwriter who will help you appreciate how a song is constructed, what constitutes a good song, and how you can either just write the music (composition), or just the lyrics (to collaborate with a composer), or a song (music and lyrics). He will introduce chords, which are harmonies that support the melody. Writing a good song is like telling a story set to music – how beautiful an art form a song is!
